on the tax. bottom line, the government takes it out of the system cutting and raising taxes and the small or deficit. that means that people are going to be out of work, almost by definition in the short run. but in the long run it's a healthier economy that doesn't go down the path of greece. if the long run greece would have low unemployment, but they do not, but yes, we're going to go a percent, if it happens the worse case scenario, but in five years we won't be not able to borrow money. >> brenda: julian, you can go ahead and respond. >> first of l, the ernst & young study has been debunked over and ov. and number two, the bush tax cuts, if you let the bh tax cuts. the crs study was a republican study and found the same thing as the cbo. if you let bush tax cuts expire on everybody, yes, you would have negative economic impact. the two staetudies done recentl shows the top two rates, top 2%, virtually no impact. to jonas' point if you raise taxes the lot and cut spending a lot and so austerity plan, that would have an impact. democrats were for pouring more money into the compli with

the speaker makes a mistake and the tea party is not a group that embraces serious tangible of government that is traditionally work in this country. there are members of congress who got elected because, in fact, the tea party activists across the country were involved in the election. the tea partiers and outsiders -- i would remind john boehner that there was a time when he was the outsider that was an annoyance to the party leadership. i understand the speaker being annoyed when he has people within his caucus that are committed to a set of principles that they make it hard for him to make easy deals. but i would also remind him that people are not going to forsake their principles for something thats as insignificant and their life as a committee assignment remark that is right. >> if he thinks this is a party discipline, he is sadly mistaken. he often knows that from his own experience as a younger time in his service in congress. charles: representative, it has been set from the beginning that the tea pay not only poses an incredible threat to the senate democrats, but to establish

them, and creating them, making them larger meaning bigger bills and government control. neil: can't they throw a bone to republicans, offer you at the gate,800 billion in tax hikes? couldn't you throw it back at them, first thing offered, doubling the tax hikes, $1.6 trillion. a clumsy start from the get-go, but i don't see any proposals to match, not the republicans spelled out they get the hikes, but to match the effort to raise taxes. >> well, look at the end of t day, this is the theater they put down the marker, no way, no how will we compromise, and the other says no way, no how will we compromise. at the end of the day, they compromise. thee have no choice. what you'll see is certain lines in the sand that the president said he will not accept. he will not accept a deal that does not include tax hikes on the wealthy. at the same time, he understands that in order to get that, he has to give the republicans something they want. by the way, the same republicans who ran a campaign with president obama cutting $716 billion out of medicare, all the sudden want tremendous cuts in
or nine or 10 years than this year. if we cannot curb the growth of anything in government how do we rain in government? >>guest: the word cut means if you got $10 president last year and you applied $15 and you get $12 million, you are "cut." this is baseline budgeting. go to zero base budgeting like most people do and you see where the "cuts" are. we are not cutting social security. we are not cutting medicare the we said get if there and stop the automatic pilot process. this stuff is on automatic pilot. of $1.1 trillion that came in, in revenue, in 2011, that is everything, it only went to medicare and medicaid and social security. we borrowed to do two wars, infrastructure, homeland security, defense, everything, culture, big bird, the whole works, we borrowed $3.6 billion a day? we don't we were know what $1 trillion is. you say the big bang theory of the universe, the planets and the sun, spinning off, that happened 13 billion years ago and that isn't close to a trillion and we owe $16 trillion those babies. have a drink. wake up! >>neil: good words, senator, thank you. >>guest: ta

in the government's effort to go after the rebels. i mean, we have seen babies and children, women, civilians tortured and killed day after day in syria. and now the thought that they might unleash chemical weapons on them is focusing new attention on what happened back in 1988 when saddam hussein did it. he used the same type of chemical weapons to kill kurds, thousands of them. again, back in '88. thousands of innocent died in the attack, more than 10,000 suffered horrific injuries, not to mention -- we'll talk about it, exactly what happened in '88, how it unfolded, how they handled it and what the death toll was. they said birds just started dropping out of the sky, sheep and goats -- that was the first sign -- started keeling over in the fields dead, and then came the human death toll. it happens quickly, and it is awful. and it is one of the reasons why our government is taking this so seriously, this possible threat. and preparation now of weapons like sarin gas. more on that coming up in just a bit. >>> also from washington right now, fox news has confirmed that the fbi is today inves

in this country, it's out of control. we need to limb the size of government. if you truly believe these things, then you say it's not just about imposing damage on the middle class, the poor who rely on social safety net programs. you have to say the rich have to have some skin in the game. >> hang on one second. >> and they do, they do. >> hang on, hang on. >> and it in terms of tax rates in this country. >> hold on. one sec. i want to ask juan a question. why won't the president negotiate all of this at the same time in because the president is saying give me what i want and then maybe next year we'll talk about what you want and we all know that's not going to happen. >> i don't think that's true. >> very true. >> from what i understand in washington, the president is saying what is critical is that republicans have to stop being inflection i believe by protecting the top two percent and sacrificing the rest of us. and if they do something about taxes on the very rich we can then talk about what spending cuts will be put in place. >> david. >> it's not fair and it's not intellectually hones
the assad government is cracking down on its own people. and this week something significant happened. the president signalled a big potential shift in u.s. involvement there. >> i want to make it absolutely clear to assad and those under his command, the world is watching. the use of chemical weapons is and would be totally unacceptable. and if you make the tragic mistake of using these weapons, there will be consequences, and you will be held accountable. >> nbc chief foreign correspondent richard engel is here to bring us more on what is a developing story. >> reporter: david, despite increasing criticism and warnings, the government of bashir al assad is revving up its activities. this area was bombed last night. regarding chemical weapons, commanders we have spoken to are very concerned that the government could use chemical weapons. they are completely not prepared for that eventuality. they don't have gas masks. they don't have medicine. there's no early warning system here. they have appealed for some kind of training, but so far on the ground there is nothing that could prote
than 50 cents of every dollar they make. they pay the state, the local, the fatigue government in taxes. what america should be addressing is two things. one, we should be addressing generational theft. we now as a country borrow 40 cents of every dollar that the government spends, and we've accumulated 16 trillion dollars in debt. now, in 2008 obama called nine trillion dollars in debt. he said that was irresponsible, unpatriotic. to say this another way, we're literally stealing money from our children and our grandchildren. now, this is the kind of generational theft that has never happened in this country until now, and neerlt part neits addressing this on a regular basis. both parties are arguing over how to tax the rich. now, number two. greed and overspending. for all the talk about greedy rich people in america, how is it possible that politicians' greed is never addressed? after all, they robbed the social security trust fund. they spent it. that's your retirement money that was supposed to be put away in a safe lock box. they spent that money. medicare is also headed for bankr
the government is simply making a peace savings. i do know seniors cannot save $5 billion without someone paying the price. melissa: thank you. be sure to watch the tom sullivan show this weekend. have all wonderful weekend. happy friday, everyone. we will see you back here on monday. ♪ gerri: tonight, did president obama break the law? some in the senate say yes, and now the cases in front of a judge. we will have a heated debate. with more than a million charities and the u.s. alone, how did you find the best one? we have you covered. "welcome to "the willis report." hello, everybody. i'm gerri willis. tonight no progress on the fiscal cliff as democrats and republicans trade barbs over the issue. one group of americans is finding a way through this regardless of congress and the president. small-business owners in this country are preparing to hire. join me now, chief u.s. economist for i may just pull one side. heart of america group founder, and member of the jobs creation alliance and actual job creators in this country who say their voices not being heard in this office took with debate
to the government to feed the beast that keeps spending and spending our money. they're allowed to hang onto a small portion of their profits. >> yeah. that is actually not really accurate. there have been numbers of studies, most recently from the organisation for economic co-operation and development but also last year we saw a bill proposed in congress from senator sanders and representative ellison, all of which identify over $10 billion annually that are going to the fossil fuel industry in subsidies. i'm a father too. melissa: congress doesn't have any money. they don't have money to give. the money they have have is my money that they have taken from me. it is company's money they have paid in. it is tax revenue. >> it is our money. melissa: hanging on to earnings, these are deductions rather than sending in even more tax dollars they're paying less tax based on investments they're making. you're calling those things subsidies. that is not congress's money. that is exxon's money it is hanging on to. but they're not taking money back. they're hanging onto the money they have earned. do you und
know also, obviously it's a government-backed market. this, trillion dollars that people, this is now, essentially entirely government market. you saw the government housing policies, loose monetary policies gave us subprime. you're seeing a credit mania created in both cases by government policies saying housing is good at any cost. education, this thing called college. wherever you studied, whatever you went, whatever you did there at any price is good and that is dangerous. melissa: money is available anyone feels like they can go out and get a loan. they're really worried about choosing a college based on price. choose it based on everything else. that is nice in a world where college is free but it's not. >> you're not helping students if you give everybody the subsidies. the colleges over the years are good at pocketing that, raising tuition prices. this is one market where it has grown, the prices have grown faster than health care. not just faster than inflation but runaway costs. >> you really believe that is true? i say that to people all the time. all it is doing is driving
with this. this is all about, all about trying to preserve medicare. so the government in this case is unusually probably trying to do the right thing. i don't know everything about it yet because it is still a little furry around the edges. but aarp jumped on this. this is not good for members. the premiums. will go down. melissa: if it went through it could be good for the members in the sense that medigap premiums would go down. >> exactly. melissa: that is something their members would really like. but once again they would not. this is the big sticking point that happens again and again. >> right. melissa: you think aarp is out there because you're a senior lobbying in your best interest. meanwhile on their website, call your congressman, do this, do that e-mails. you could be following their lead and doing things actually against your best interest. >> yeah. the problem if you don't really pay attention to what they're doing they mask it so beautifully. they really do, a good job. i watch their commercials all day long. always sounds like they're advocating for their seniors.

union anger at michigan's right to work legislation? this goes to the heart of government spending and the position of organized labor in president obama's second term. we're right there in michigan. let's go to facebook. weigh in on what's happening there. will detroit get a bailout and what do you think about the unions? will they win? good questions all. now, one of the worst blowouts in nfl history. seattle seahawks beat arizona cardinals 58-0. the cardinals threw four interceptions fumbled four times and gained 154 yards and seattle undefeated at home and then there's this. the new york giants scored only 52 points in the win over the new orleans saints. the star was the rookie and he returned the kick off for touchdown and all purpose yards and kept the giants in the lead. and major result for the economy. people having fewer babies, blaming the economy and one woman who took a chance and had six children anyway. we'll have that and of course the opening bell right after this. >> less than a minute to the opening bell. there's the news background that says that consumer spen

people in the world and they want the government to make more of your money. warren buffett, george soros, bill gates' dad they want the estate tax to go up and say the rate should start at 45% and go up from there. and millions would qualify to pay, but buffett and soros have an estate plan to avoid much of that tax. i'm quoting now, an estate tax with these guidelines to reduce the deficit and fund vital services and paid by only 10% of the estate. work your whole life and half of it goes to the children and half to the government and of course it's already been taxed when you earned it in the first place, is that fair? we're dealing with that today. i'm waiting for my special dividend from microsoft, but the company i own shares in has ramped up production of its new surface tablet. maybe that will help the stock. are you listening, steve ballmer? nicole, pre-market, where is the stock? >> stuart, you're making me laugh already and the show has barely begun. you're waiting for your special dividend? clamoring? okay, fine. you may have heard a shriek and a cheer out of the green room ea

hearing at the start of the health reform debate, which may be apocryphal, "keep government hands off my medicare." the big tea party uprising was in large part a reaction to the idea, quote/unquote, of socialized medicine. it was the affordable care act, and the government, quote, takeover of health care, that fanned the flames of the post-obama tea party protest. but, of course, most of the actual republicans who were actually elected back then were elected because they ran ads like this. >> congressman brad ellsworth said he would protect our seniors. but when he got to washington, congressman ellsworth voted for the largest cuts in medicare history, over $500 billion. robin carnahan supports $500 billion in medicare cuts, ç hurting seniors most. rand paul doesn't support higher medicare deductibles for seniors. conway distracts with negative ads to hide his support for obama care, which cuts medicare by $500 billion. >> that was 2010. fast forward to this year's election and the same principle carries through. each side tried to convince voters that the other guy wanted to take the

atlanta. hala, first of all, you've got the syrian rebels, they're there fighting al assad's government. now the u.s. government, state department, steps in and says, a small faction of this group is considered a terrorist organization. what does that mean on the ground in syria for the rebel forces? >> well, it's hard to tell if it's going to mean anything, really. because what we're hearing now, uniformly from rebel groups on the ground after the designation by the united states of the nusra front as a foreign terrorist organization, look you can't not arm us, not finance us, and at the same time tell us not to rely on the best sort of armed and financed subgroup in the anti-assad fight. so rebel groups are saying you're putting us in a difficult position. they're having in some cases to rely on the jihadist group and its tactics reminiscent of what happened in iraq, suzanne, as you know with the car bombings and suicide bombings, in order to make battlefield gains. you saw nick paton walsh's pieces as well one of the most significant battleground advances, the reported occupation, i
